I was cruising around and found this not-so-new item, but one which does not portend well.
Not about net neutrality which looks like it's moribund, no, this one is about Russia having plans for an alternate internet involving China, Brazil, India and South Africa.
This is allegedly to insure everyone involved against NSA hacking. Sometimes you have to laugh from irony, though.
"Brazil is set to finalize a 34,000-kilometre undersea fiber-optic cable by 2015 that will run from Vladivostok, Russia to Fortaleza, Brazil, via Shantou, China, Chennai, India and Cape Town, South Africa. According to the Hindu, the project will create, “a network free of US eavesdropping,” which via legislative mandates will also force the likes of Google, Facebook and Yahoo to store all data generated by BRICS nations locally, shielding it from NSA snooping." - InfoWars
McAfee is also coming out with a gadget named "Decentral" ($100) which will thwaert the NSA. Sure it will.
The other joke is that the FSB/GRU, etc. will be part of that internet...so pick your poison, and I wouldn't bet that these new cables won't be monitored by the NSA on short order, as well.
Then, there are others who think it's more because they plan attacks on the internet's backbone, themselves.
So much for today's Spy vs. Spy vs. Spy.
